Become a host family

  • Profile information

  • Write a message to your guests. This could be a simple “Welcome to my family / Australia” or a short blurb about how excited you are to meet them.
  • Share something about yourself, your home and your family - hobbies, pets, interests, occupations etc. Include as much information as you can to get your students excited about meeting you!
  • Residents

    We’ll need some information about the members in your family. Every permanent resident over the age of 18 must have the relevant Working With Children Check in place before hosting a student and these must be kept up to date. Our hostfamily team will be in contact to get you started on the relevant form.
